Stock tippmann barrel and 14 inch Smart Parts Progressive
Easy on your pocket, premium quality for the most.
The become dimpled easily...dimpled paintballs don't fly accurately.
I played a 2 on 2 on 3 man team game with them. 4 of us used these paintballs, so I had the priviledge of shooting and getting shot with them. I had purchased a hard case of 1500 from the local walmart for $34, only found about 2 or 3 broken paintballs all together in the case. I did find roughly 40 -75 dimpled or dented paintballs, in 1 bag....my 3 friends who also bought these found the same in their cases. We all use different guns, only my teammate with a spyder had a break in the gun, but it cleaned out easy.
Excellent product, except for the amount dimples you will probably find. They were great, would have gotten a 10, but one thing was the problem.....DIMPLES!!!!!!
Aside from that, I would recommend them and I will use them again.

They are not round witch causes them to be inaccurate. Have dimmples. Break in barrel.
I bought these paintballs at Walmart in a 500 count box and I was very disappointed. these paintballs were $11.50 for 500 and I thought that they would at least be ok because they were made by Draxxus. when I took them out of the box I noticed that all of the balls were ovals. I took them outside and shot off a couple and boy did I get mad. they curved at total 90 degree angles. I don't know if it was just my box but I can tell you that I will never be buying these paintballs again.
I give thse a two because even though that they are the lamest exuse for a paintball I have ever seen, I still like the color.
Any Wal-Mart brand. Blue Streak, Afterburner, dusk, superswirl.

spyder/ PMI threaded (all that I've ever used).
I got mine Xtremely cheap! $10.60 for 1500!
I don't think that there are any, none ever broke with me.
Technically I think that this would have been more of a test because I played 4, 10 minute games and only went through 1000 of my 1500. When the old Wal-mart went out of buisness to be replaced by the "Super Wal-Mart", everything was on sale. $10.00, what the heck, plus a case, that's surprisingly MADE IN THE U.S.A.! I have shot very fast with these(probably 5-12 bps), not only because that I have a single trigger I held the gun in one hand and used my right index finger to shoot as fast as possible, I guess for integrity purposes. They r great. I love them. I would also recommend them for their original price $34.95 I believe.
The shells are very strong, but not strong enough to not break on the persons that I was playing against.
In my opinion, I don't like Kickin' Paint because when I got shot 3 separate times in 3 different games, those three never broke on my clothing, but one(out of one) did on the mask. For reference purposes, my friend was using a PMI Electronic marker with 290-310 fps. On the other hand, my Scorch broke very time, and I'm doing 275-290 give or take 10 fps.
These are great paintballs, not only for the price that I got them for, but because I would use them in a tournament game if I could. I like Wal-Mart paint. I have never had any problems with any of their paint. So if you guys with crappy guns or are just newbies that use "stock" equipment, don't diss on their quality of their paint, because most of the time it's either the gun itself, the nut behind the trigger, or the nut that forgot to oil the bolt before playing their first game.
I give it a 9 because no paint is perfect. Just because no paint broke in this box, doesn't mean that all of the paint in the next box will break.

I'd recommend a middle bore size not too small, but not too big.
Breaks on impact
I've used this paint for my practice and once in a tournament. I really like this paint because it is affordable and a great ball. Once you match up a good bore size to it, it won't fail you. I've never chopped one in my marker and use it in a Q-Loader. I've used this paint for a while and I will continue to use it.
The only thing I don't like about it, is the packaging it comes in. They have it in some hard case, but it causes dimples a little so it's good to make sure and look through the box and check broken or dimpled paint.
There's really not much to say about this paint other than it is a very decent paint in comparison with others distributed by Draxxus/Diablo. Heck, I'd just say this paint pretty darn good.
You can pick these up at Wal-Mart and test them for yourself. I'd tell you to use this paint for anything if you go to a BYOP field. I give it a 9 because there is not such thing as perfect paint.
any, i guess... ive only tried it on a progressive
Cheap, surprisingly accurate at distances of about 75 feet
None that I could see
I went to Wal-Mart, looking for the Draxxus Dusks I usually shoot, but there were none in stock. I decided against shooting Zaps or Blue Streaks, because of past poor experiences ive had with them. I looked at the minimal paintball selection, and then decided on the scorch's, because it said they were made by the same people that made draxxus or something like that. When i took it home, and loaded my gun, i was surprised at the accuracy and consistancy of the paintballs. They shot well at far distances, and the paint was bright pink..
I reccomend these paintballs to the player who has a low - mid level gun and does not want to spend his/her hard owned scratch on more expensive paint.
I guess this paint would be ok for slow rates of fire but i tested it at 19bps and after the first 10 balls or so it was shooting streams of paint everywhere. This was a brand new box i bought from wal-mart and was not sitting on the shelf long it was there new shipment of paint -- Ok i tested the paint with my spyder, it was ok just messing around and shooting a ball every now and then.... i shot like 10 balls in a row kabloom paint spraying everywhere this stuff gets a 1 too bad i cant give it a 0
Not for high ROF or any type of game play, go buy dusk at wallmart that stuff is great but not all wal-marts carry it anymore

Tippman A-5 w/ E-Grip
Dye Boomstick/Flatline (depends where I'm playing)
Dead On Gas Thru Grip
I used both the boomstick and the flatline and absolutely no breaks in 1500 shots. I was especially surprised when nothing broke in the flatline, because it has that reputation that has to be super clean inside to shoot...like i said, no break.
-CHEAP-only $34 at walmart for 1500 w/ container
-Nice bright colors
Did not see any.
They are just great quality paint for a cheap price in my opinion. Those PMI's cost around $40 for a 1000 and you get 500 more for $5 less with these. They are awesome. They are not by all means the best paint ever but if you looking to havea great experience and you dont have that much money to spend, this paint is for you. They are especially great for kids, like myself, with not much money to spend every week or two, again, like myself.
This paint is the best you can get for the price. If your ever at walmart and you need paint, look for these. They are usually on the top shelf in a big black box that you would think is a fishing tackle box. I'm going to rate this product a 10 for its low price and great quality.
tippman a-5 with flatline barrel and e-grip with a 68delta as a side arm
pritty much all ok barrels
cheap,not alot of breaks in bags, breaks on impact
if your starting out or just play for fun these paintballs are for you. once i saw these in wallmart i bought one and had no breaks in the bags or in my berrel. very very cheap and come with the nifty black carring case (witch i usuly sell 2 my friends at school 4 about 3-5 dollers) lol iv bought about 30 cases of these and have had only one broken ball in the bag.
if ur just looking 4 a good time at a cheap price get these balls.
Winchester durango , same as Zap point zero soon to be replaced with an an A5
Definately not the stock winchester/zap one
The will is great, bright pink and very thick.
The Price is cheap.
They fly like a baseball pitchers dream, they curve like you could never imagine.
You'll laugh your head off watching these little red guys taking off. They are great for little kids just getting into it. They are happy to just have something to shoot and it's easy on the pocket book.
With this combination of crappy barrel and cheap paint barrel breaks have no impact on the terrible accuracy.
If you compete with my group of mostly relaxed woods ball players your opponents will be laughing so hard watching you shoot these things that they might fall down and if you can run fast enough you just might get within ten feet so you can hit them.
I paid $25 for these. If I found these at $7 for 1500 balls I'd buy them out. Save them for the kids and get me some good paint. I ordered a thunder pig barrel to try on these guns, so maybe that will help. Putting the cheapest paint I could find in a $20 gun it pretty much turned out like I expected, but it introduces new people to the sport. Renting a gun with 100 balls runs about $20/day around here and they are only slighty better.
You get what you pay for with this paint. My kids are just learning how to point the gun at what they want to hit (after watching too many TV examples on how to shoot a gun) . Starting out they will have just as much success and fun with this cheap stuff as any other paintball.
If they have fun, I have fun. If they have fun and it doesn't cost too much my significant other stays happy. If I bought the three boys and myself $100+ guns and an $80 case of paint, I'd be sleeping on the couch for a couple of months.
I only rated this a seven because it really is bad paint and I don't want anyone to see it's rated high and go buy it it they haven't read the reviews. If I was just looking at value per dollar it would be a 10.
